Ford’s latest Everest redefines its segment with advanced & purposeful technologies
Terrain Management System (TMS)
Like having an expert off-road driver available on demand, the Ford Everest’s smart system fine-tunes the vehicle’s throttle response, transmission, traction control and intelligent four-wheel drive system to optimize performance whatever the conditions, helping you always stay in command.
Four different smart terrain settings for conquering all conditions:
Normal: Tuned for the best on-road driving experience. Sends torque to front wheels when needed based on steering and throttle, and to minimize wheel slip.
Snow, Mud, Grass: Prioritizes maintaining traction on slippery or loose surfaces.
Sand: Helps you maintain momentum through sand with aggressive torque transfer and higher throttle sensitivity.
Rock: Works in conjunction with low-range four-wheel drive to provide maximum traction and precise low-speed control to help you navigate.
New Ford Everest
4×4 Off-road Mastery Ford’s newest seven-seat SUV is built tough to take on all terrains with ease. Featuring smart technologies that help take the guesswork out of driving both on and off the road, the Ford Everest enables you and your passengers to enjoy extraordinary journeys with confidence.
Torque on Demand via Active Transfer Case
Keeps you in control and maximizes performance by continuously calculating and adjusting the torque distribution to the wheels with the most grip. Automatically transfers torque between front and rear wheels to give you maximum traction and control even in slippery and challenging driving conditions. Helps you set and maintain a constant speed to tackle steep descents with ease, allowing you to take your feet off the pedals and concentrate on steering. Can be manually activated on any terrain – even on rocks, mud and snow. Locking the rear axle helps prevent rear wheels from spinning while driving off-road, increasing traction in challenging conditions. Can be locked automatically when using off-road TMS modes, or toggled manually using the differential lock button.
